The Deluxe Apex Ready Adapter from Flasc is designed specifically for the new Empire Apex 2, but will also work great with the original apex as well. It has a much longer body then the original adapter so it does not hide completely inside the Apex 2 as does the standard adapter. The longer body on the tip has also allowed us room to give this new tip its own porting to help reduce volume and increase consistency. Of course for this tip we decided to use our Gen2 porting system for best possible performance which also makes this tip work great with ported or unported barrels alike. We used a thinner walled section for the porting so that when inside the apex2 the porting does not get blocked by the apex body and air can escape through the porting and out the back of the apex2 via grooves built into the back of the adapter. The Deluxe Apex Ready Adapter also includes a small set screw at the base to fix it to your barrel, so you will never accidentally unscrew the Adapter from the barrel when trying to twist the apex around for a trick shot!
